It’s a shocking news cames from UK as In a groundbreaking surgery, a UK woman’s unborn baby was removed from her womb for an emergency procedure and then put back. Bethan Simpson was 20-weeks pregnant in early December 2018 when her baby was diagnosed with Spina Bifida. The doctors gave her three options – continue the pregnancy as it is, terminate the pregnancy or undergo a fetal surgery.
However the 26-year-old chose the third option which eventually turned out to be a successful one, reported LadBible. Simpson shared details about her complication on a facebook post with multiple pictures. It has now gone viral on social media.
The fetal surgery was carried out at the University College London Hospital (UCLH) on January 8 and Simpson became only the fourth woman in the country to undergo such a procedure. According to reports, the surgery was done to repair the baby’s spine and it has now increased the baby's chances of walking after birth. Medical experts said babies born with Spinal Bifida are often unable to walk and require multiple operations by the time they are adults. However, the surgery to repair the spine comes with a lot of risks as the baby must be completely removed from the mother’s womb.
Simpson wrote as "I feel our baby kick me day in and day out. That's never changed. She's extra special. She's part of history and our daughter has shown just how much she deserves this life,".
"We were a success. Her lesion was small, and she smashed surgery like you wouldn't believe. I'm fragile and sore but as long as she is doing fine, that's all we care about,” wrote Simpson on Facebook. Simpson thanked the doctors and her family members for their courage and support.
